Screen issues after installing video drivers
« on: May 22, 2022, 05:53:48 AM »
I've recently installed coreplus on my old asus eee 700. Then I tried to install xf86-intel-video driver and my screen turned in the corrupted mess in the pic. Even the tty is unusable. It's just two dots on a black screen. Rebooting, installing Xorg-7.7-bin, and setting screen resolution to 800x480 (native resolution) didn't do anything.
Can I salvage it without reinstalling?

Check onboot.lst, remove everything except Xvesa, flwm, aterm and wbar and reboot.

That worked, thanks.
Should I install some other driver or is the generic one fine?
upd:
this is kind of weird.
If I install the driver in the tty in works fine and even sets the resolution to the correct one but the moment I switch to the graphical desktop it becomes corrupted.

If you want to use xf86-video-intel, you need to replace Xvesa with Xorg-7.7.

They need to be loaded before starting the gui.

I've put Xorg-7.7-bin.tcz and xf86-video-intel.tcz  and removed Xvesa in onboot.lst but it still boots in the tty

Not Xorg-7.7-bin, Xorg-7.7

I see. Now everything works.
